Union Berlin or Draw

Julien Nagelsmann's men will finish the 2020/21 Bundesliga season as runners up. Irrespective of the final result on Saturday, their position in the league and UEFA Champions League qualification is secure. Meanwhile, Union Berlin still have plenty at stake in the final fixture. They occupy the last slot for Europa League Conference qualification and need to give a good account of their abilities to ensure such an eventuality. Union will fancy their chances with Frankfurt winning just one of their last five games. Their record in games where they started as outsiders, unbeaten at home in five matches also favours the Double Chance prediction.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Despite registering the most draws in the 2020/21 German top-flight football season, Union have been seen 2.7 goals per match, the same record RB Leipzig have managed. With both sides seeing the Over 2.5 coming to fruition in three of their last five matches, more of the same is expected in their final outing of the campaign.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

RB Leipzig have managed the best defensive record in the Bundesliga. However, their recent poor form has seen them concede nine goals in their last four outings. Union will fancy their chances in the fixture with nine goals against their name in their last five matches at home. With Leipzig in tumultuous form and Union exhibiting their ability to score against all and sundry, the scoreboard should tick in both directions.

Union Berlin vs RB Leipzig: Team News and Match Preview

Union Berlin

Urs Fischer stands to enter Union Berlin's record books by guiding the club to their first-ever UEFA competition qualification. Die Eisernen have given a good account of their abilities, moving away from the midtable obscurity to ensure a top-half finish. However, the job is not done as they are under pressure from Borussia Monchengladbach, Stuttgart and Freiburg for their place on the points table. They need to deliver against Die Roten Bullen to keep their fate in their own control. With Max Kruse failing to score in his last seven outings, the rallying call needs to be made for Europa League qualification.

RB Leipzig

Julien Nagelsmann had orchestrated a perfect route to league and cup glory. However, the young coach's plans were undone by the lack of reliable goal-scoring options. Both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund inflicted damaging defeats to end their campaign. They came in second in both the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal, having nothing to show for their season-long efforts. With nothing to prove and at stake, the final fixture presents a final opportunity to showcase what is expected of them next season. While the likes of Emil Forsberg and Yussuf Poulsen have struggled, it has been an impressive season for Dani Olmo and Marcel Sabitzer.
